These are the traditional brackets and wire utilized to move the teeth. Luckily, the brackets and wires have gotten much smaller and less noticeable over time. They utilize metal wires and brackets to correct alignment issues. Of all the options they are the most noticeable, however they are the most cost effective orthodontic treatment available. Some children may love the ability to express themselves with different colors.
Ceramic braces are much like traditional braces except they are less noticeable. They can use either tooth-colored or clear brackets that easily blend with your teeth. Tooth-colored wires are also available to diminish the appearance of the braces. These braces are more expensive than traditional braces.
Invisible braces are the latest technology in treating alignment issues. They are made from invisible plastic, making them virtually unnoticeable. Unlike traditional and ceramic dental braces, invisible braces can easily be removed for things such as eating, drinking and cleaning of teeth. These braces are not an option for children or those with extreme alignment issues. The treatment duration can also be longer than using traditional or ceramic braces. These are the most expensive orthodontic alignment treatment but may be worth it for cosmetic reasons.
Dental retainers are used once braces have been removed. They help ensure the new alignment lasts once the braces are off. A retainer is most likely the last step of your orthodontic treatment, teeth may shift after braces are removed so we recommend wearing a retainer at night to ensure the placement lasts.
